The Library of Catholic Thought, part of Theology and Religion Online, presents essential resources for studying the development of Catholic thought and theology.
A key element of the Library is the new fully revised third edition of the Jerome Biblical Commentary. This 2 million-word project by leading Catholic biblical scholars features a preface by Pope Francis and is digitally exclusive to the Library of Catholic Thought. In addition to the biblical commentaries themselves, exclusive topical articles cover such themes as social justice, ethics, the bible in the life of the Church and the bible in diverse contexts. The commentary is linked to a digital edition of the New American Bible.
This collection introduces students to Catholic biblical interpretation, to key figures in the history of Catholic thought and to majors doctrines, themes, and events. The resource also features works on the interaction between Catholicism and modern science, and on the history of Catholic moral theology.
